The book is divided into two sections: the theory section and the practical section.
The theory section outlines esoteric theory and Hermetic philosophy to help the student when following this course. Topics covered include the elements (fire, air, water and earth plus the fifth, ether), Karma (the law of cause and effect), occult anatomy, the physical, astral and mental planes and the matters of religion and God.
The practical section is divided into 10 steps. Each step contains physical, astral and mental exercises which the student must master to the degree laid out by Bardon before moving on to the next step. The three kinds of exercises within a step are to be practiced concurrently, the idea being that this will lead to a more balanced development.
Like my first work this book has been written in a colloquial and easy to read style. This is so that even the simplest man can get thoroughly acquainted with this art, not only in theory, but also in practice. The practical application of what I am going to say about evocation in this, my second volume will only become possible for the reader who has attained the goal of my first book: a thorough command of the mysteries of the first tarot-card, or at least of the facts laid down in my first volume up to and including Step 8. Only then will the reader be able to achieve. satisfying results.
If I succeed in paving the way for the reader who has worked through my first book, so that he gets satisfying results in his work, the aim of this book has been fulfilled. But even the reader who intends to deal with this secret science only in theory will find in this book an enlargement of his theoretical knowledge.
The third book reveals the deepest secrets of the mystic kabbalistic and magical formulas using Theurgy, the cosmological, divine science of letters. Part I: the Theory of the kabbalah, including the esoterics of letters, mantras, tantras, the Tetragrammaton, sorcerers' formulas. Part II: Theurgical Practice in ten steps, the ten kabbalistic keys and their practice. Part III: the Practice of Formula Magic: use of the keys, and the use of Divine names and beings.
In The Key to the True Kabbalah you will find a full instruction into the mysticism of letters, their corresponding sounds, and numbers. The concept behind this metaphysical masterwork is that all that exists is based on vibration and by the deliberate use of specific sounds in the correct sequence it is possible to affect the physical world.
Only a fragment of a manuscript Bardon was working on but never completed. This book was supposed to have concerned the fourth leaf or trump card of the Tarot (the Emperor). There remains no complete transcript of the work.
If knowledge and wisdom keep the same pace in development, the adept is enabled to grasp all the laws of the microcosm and the microcosm, not only from the point of view of wisdom, but also from the intellectual side, that is, in a bipolar way, to perceive and utilize them for his own development. - Franz Bardon
Frabato the Magician by Franz Bardon is an occult novel. And, as Franz Bardon clearly relates the effects and practices of Hermetic magical practices in his own life, as well as the sorcery of his enemies, Frabato the Magician is not just an ordinary novel; it is also a book of indirect instruction on the mystical arts. There aren’t many novels that provide an accurate and revealing look into the actual dark occult forces and practices which lay behind the rise of the Third Reich, how the effects of nature take place, how they can be commanded or that explain how this is actually done magically. Frabato the Magician also shows the consequences from the abuses of such power as they happened to real people who were power hungry. Whether such dark forces are play at present is for anyone to guess but, certainly, many would have reason to think it.

I share your enthusiasm. His books have been constant companions to me for a quarter of a century.
I suppose I am sort of assuming that you are interested in broadening your scope on the Bardon stuff; I dunno. I have other links if you are interested, just let me know.
